Ahmadinejad: Crazy!!!

David Seaton's News Links
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a terrible, terrible man and obviously insane. I have taken the liberty of underlining some of the crazier things this loon wrote in his absurd letter to the "Noble Americans" (doesn't that just sound like Borat?). I wonder what would happen if any American politician said any of these dreadful, insane things. DS
Abstract from Associated Press: In an open letter, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad urged the American people Wednesday to demand the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq and reject what he called the US government's "blind support" for Israel and its "illegal and immoral" actions in fighting terrorism.(...) "Undoubtedly, the American people are not satisfied with this behavior and they showed their discontent in the recent elections," Ahmadinejad wrote. "I hope that in the wake of the mid-term elections, the administration of President Bush will have heard and will heed the message of the American people." In a message to Democrats, he said, "you will also be held to account by the people and by history." "If the US government meets the current domestic and external challenges with an approach based on truth and justice, it can remedy some of the past afflictions and alleviate some of the global resentment and hatred of America," Ahmadinejad said.(...) In Wednesday's letter, he said, "we, like you, are aggrieved by the ever-worsening pain and misery of the Palestinian people" and accused the Bush administration of disregarding public opinion by remaining "in the forefront of supporting the trampling of the rights of the Palestinian people." "What has blind support for the Zionists by the US administration brought for the American people?" Ahmadinejad asked. "It is regrettable that for the US administration, the interests of these occupiers supersedes the interests of the American people and of the other nations of the world." He urged Americans to support the right of the Palestinians to live in their own homeland.(...) Ahmadinejad said in Wednesday's letter that the US invasion of Iraq, while overthrowing Saddam Hussein which people "are happy about," has led to hundreds of thousands of deaths, an exponential growth of terrorism, and no rebuilding of Iraq's ruined infrastructure. "I consider it extremely unlikely that you, the American people, consent to the billions of dollars of annual expenditure from your treasury for this military misadventure," he said. "Now that Iraq has a constitution and an independent assembly and government, would it not be more beneficial to bring the US officers and soldiers home, and to spend the astronomical US military expenditures in Iraq for the welfare and prosperity of the American people?" Ahmadinejad asked. "As you know very well, many victims of Katrina continue to suffer, and countless Americans continue to live in poverty and homelessness." READ IT ALL

Why do you characterize this as "crazy"? He is expressing a point of view held by millions of people who don't live in the US. I am a new reader, but this is the first time I've seen you name-calling and demonizing someone. We should be careful not to dismiss the ideas of different people, especially those on the list of the US's official enemies. While one may not agree with Iran's president on a lot of issues, I don't find what he said crazy and terrible. I would like to hear your thoughts on how this man is crazier or more terrible than the people who rule the US.

Ahmadinejad is making perfect sense. Before George Bush invaded Iraq, he too made a similar plea to the Noble Iraqi People to rise up against their oppressive ruler, Saddam Hussein. We can't forget George Bush, Dick 'Halliburton' Cheney, and Don 'Rummy' Rumsfeld in their speeches and open letters stating that 'We' are not against the Iraqi people, just their leader Saddam. The American leaders did the same toward the Iraqi people that Ahmadinejad was doing here. That was (is) making the point that if the People don't stop their leader from doing wrong, everyone suffers.

The only crazy part of Ahmadinejad's plea to the American people is the claim that we could use the Billions of Dollars of war funding, "...for the welfare and prosperity of the American people..."

Apparently Ahmadinejad is not aware that we are doing this whole 'War' thing on a credit card - money borrowed from the '…National Bank of…' Communist China. And just as with any credit card, it is too easy to get over-extended because the money seems to be 'free'.

History has shown us that the Empire of Great Britain had its final downfall because of the extreme war debt it racked-up while fighting the one-two punch of WWI and WWII. Unlike Britain then though, America has a choice. If America does not 'get right' soon, we will wake up one day to a world being run by China. We'll be standing with a dazed look on our face, asking "…wh-wh-wh-what happened?" And just like in Merry Old England, America will have a bunch of old folks in denial. Folks who will adamantly refuse to accept that America is no longer the Super Power Big-Dog-On-The-Block. Wake up America!

Just because he doesn't agree with the U.S. DOES NOT make him crazy!! Im am really tired of hearing this, impressive site and all, but TERRORISM STARTS AS A SEED, seeds that need watering. These people want to kill us want to for reasons we may not see if we have pulled the shade over our eyes with this national false sense of "patriotism", when all it is, is support for George Bush's worldwide terror-machine. (i.e. support for Israel, are you KIDDING ME?!) Ahmadinejad is doing what is best for the people of his country, and you just cannot see eye-to-eye with him, clouded by some ridiculous neo-conservative fear of terrorists over throwing our government or what-have-you. NO MATTER HOW MANY planes they hijack, the only thing terrorist can do is make a STATEMENT, this should not be taken as a huge deal, b/c when it is, THEN WIN. AND THEY HAVE BEEN. Mostly in part thanks to Mr. Bush's policies, which i may remind you, the man had a graduating GPA of 2.35. OUR COUNTRY, MY COUNTRY, the first true democracy, is now in a national debt crisis, for what? "A mistake." (direct quote from Mr. Bill O'Riley) we cannot spend any more in the Middle East when Iraq already has a surplus of American taxpayer's money, and violence continues to fluctuate, despite false promises pushed by the media. Call me a "terrorist" b/c I believe the people of the world deserve better. Im leaving my URL so if you wish to continue this debate, (which i would love to) the link is there! I am a poli/sci major, so please don't try and feed me the conservative Kool-Aid, I will just have water.
